Údarás na Gaeltachta is a regional state agency that is committed to producing high quality, Irish language programs.

The organisation provides funding for community cooperatives and development companies and works in partnership with youth clubs and pre-school groups. Údarás na Gaeltachta represents Ireland’s Gaeltacht region and highlights the important the social, cultural and economic roles it plays by funding these community cooperatives.

Údarás na Gaeltachta and the Arts Council of Ireland also fund a variety of traditional and contemporary Irish language arts projects in the Gaeltacht areas through Ealaín na Gaeltachta with the goal of community development.

Examples of projects that are eligible for funding are festivals, publications, literary events, dramas, seminars and educational workshops.

We are delighted that Údarás na Gaeltachta sponsors the Léiriúcháin Teilifíse i nGaeilge – Faisnéis agus Drámaíocht award and we extremely proud of the work that it does to promote the Irish language.
